The New York Rangers have re-signed restricted free agent center Derick Brassard to a five-year, $25 million contract, avoiding arbitration.

Brassard, 26, registered 18 goals and 27 assists for 45 points, along with 46 penalty minutes, in 81 games with the Rangers this past season.

In the 2013-14 campaign, he established career-highs in games played, goals, game-winning goals (four), powerplay goals (seven), powerplay assists (11), and powerplay points (18).

Brassard has skated in 403 career NHL games with the Rangers and Columbus, registering 81 goals and 144 assists for 225 points, along with 230 penalty minutes. He made his NHL debut as a member of the Blue Jackets on Jan. 11, 2008 vs. St. Louis.

The Hull, Quebec, native was acquired from Columbus on April 3, 2013, along with John Moore, Derek Dorsett, and a sixth-round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for Marian Gaborik, Blake Parlett, and Steven Delisle.

He was originally selected by Columbus in the first round, sixth overall, of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
